Simplicity vs Complexity

Its funny how at times.. the simpliest of matters get blown out of proportion and made into something complex. Too much thought can be put on something straighforward... leading to confusion. Nike's motto says it all: Just do it. Simple really.. but in reality comes the doubts and excuses: Why should i? Should i? but... Is that right? Are you sure? Its not my concern.. Don't feel like it.. and the list goes on.

Then comes the why should something complex.. be made complex? why can't it be made simple?? Would that be impossible?

"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity."- Charles Mingus

Then again.. would it seem complex due to inefficient knowledge? Textbooks.. at times i wonder why do they phrase it the way they do? Why use the "grandmother story" method to explain when there are simplier alternatives? Is it due to the need to seem professional? @.@ or am i just.. lacking proper foundation knowledge? (stars in system and signals.. blah)

Simplicity vs complexity... give me simplicity anyday.. but then again.. i tend to think too much.. so.. perhaps its time to grow out of it? maybe?lol
